Unseen Adolf Hitler photographs publishedBreaking News
The colour pictures come from the collection of Hugo Jaeger, Hitler's personal photographer, who captured him on camera him from 1936 to the final days of his rule in 1945.
They include a glimpse inside Berghof, his mountaintop estate in Bavaria, and his private apartments in Berlin.
The collection, sold by Jaeger to Life magazine in 1965, was almost seized by American troops in 1945.
Jaeger hid thousands of transparencies in a leather suitcase at the end of the war.
The case was found by six US soldiers as they searched a house near Munich where he was staying but they were more interested in a bottle of cognac he had also slipped inside.
Jaeger later buried the photographs in glass jars before eventually passing them on to the magazine.
